Aww, man. I've been buying houseplants this past summer. Right now, only the pothos is still growing. (And the bamboo sticks are still alive, but it's tough to kill that one). My chia plant (baby's tears) is half-alive (or half-dying). This is because I over-watered it (I know that because there was an inch thick water in the container underneath). The ivy I bought for these cute little pots shaped like Wellington boots look burnt out. My peperomia (?) has even started wilting and a couple of leaves came off in my hand this morning. For a while, I had thought it was growing. Aaarrrggghh. These are all supposedly shade plants, and my place has next to no natural light. I put them on the sundeck sometimes if I think they might need some sunshine. Maybe I should just buy fake ones and pretend they're real.
